An Evening of Song and Conversation with Peter Yarrow
UConn Avery Point Auditorium
Groton, CT
Share this event:








Peter Yarrow's talents as a creative artist-both with the legendary trio 'Peter, Paul & Mary; and as a solo performer-are frequently directed at using music to convey a message of humanity and caring. His gift for songwriting has produced some of the most moving songs from Peter, Paul & Mary, including 'Puff, the Magic Dragon', 'Day is Done', 'Light One Candle', and 'The Great Mandala'. As a member of the renowned musical trio, Yarrow has earned multiple gold and platinum albums, as well as numerous GRAMMYs. Over the years, many issues have moved Peter to commit his time and talent: equal rights, peace, the environment, gender equality, homelessness, hospice care, and education.

Join us for 'An Evening of Song and Conversation with Peter Yarrow'  -- a fund-raiser for the New London Maritime Society.

Friday, December 2, at 7 PM, at the UConn Avery Point Auditorium. (UConn is a sponsor!)

Concert tickets are $35 each.
(Tickets will not be sold at the door, due to venue regulations.)

There also will be a special pre-concert wine-and-cheese reception for the artist from 5:30 to 6:30 PM. Combination reception/concert tickets are $70. The opportunity to meet Peter will be held at UCONN's Branford House.

Opening for Peter Yarrow are Michael Hough and David Tamulevich of 'Mustards Retreat'.

'Yes, it will be nostalgic for many. But on another level, it will bring them a sense of what is still possible. Yes, they will sing Leaving on a Jet Plane, and I will give them a sense of the current history of what this music is doing, and why its important. So it will be a history lesson, it will be a singalong that inspires, but it will also assert the importance of the continuation of this kind of music in peoples lives today. And where were going from here in those terms. Its not necessarily a big lecture  its inherent in the music. Theyll get it. I know it, cause that's what I do.'                
-- Peter Yarrow
